About

I am a Chartered Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have a breadth and depth of experience in the principles of Psychology spanning 30 plus years. I treat a wide range of psychological difficulties including long term conditions. I aim to make the therapeutic arena a safe and comfortable space so that you feel able to share difficult and challenging issues. My goal is to empower you with skills and techniques enabling you to move forward in life, and to maintain progress after therapy is completed.
I use evidence-based therapy, in line with NICE Guidelines, treat adults 18 plus. Take an integrative approach, drawing on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),Compassion Focused Therapy-Compassionate Mind Training. Special Interest: Stress & Long Term Conditions
I work collaboratively , ensuring therapy is bespoke to each persons’ specific needs. I value the importance of developing a sound, trusting therapeutic relationship. This enables therapy to be effective allowing to draw on your strengths/resilience. At the end of the day our goal in therapy is the same, working towards and resulting in your wellbeing.
